The greatest buzzers in history: Season eight, round two

It definitely seems like the fan favorites are taking the lead.

UPDATE: This round is now closed. You can vote on round three here.

The voting for American Ninja Warrior season eight has moved into its second round. Some of the numbers from round one were CLOSE. But it does seem like the fan favorites are pulling ahead. That means we’re seeing certain names repeat more than once. If that continues, it will soon be legend vs legend in the later rounds, or legends vs themselves as their different runs face off.

Don’t forget all the quirks of the season eight brackets. There are two brackets and the winners will face off in a final round. We also included a few runs that did not have videos available in order to get the brackets balanced out.

We’d love to hear more about how you’re making your voting choices. What makes you pick one buzzer over another? Jump down to the comments section and share your thoughts! But on your way there, cast your votes for round two.

Ground rules

  • We’re starting with season four in 2012.
    That was the first season the show started traveling from location to location, and that the National Finals were held in Las Vegas. Also, we’re starting with this season because that’s as far back as we can find videos for the runs on one of the two different official YouTube accounts that archive them. This one with G4 and USA Network videos and this one with NBC videos.
  • The run has to have a video on one of those channels.
    We feel it’s important for the voters to be able to watch the runs. That way, even if they weren’t watching way back in 2012, they can still participate in the vote. We realize this excludes buzzer runs that aren’t posted. The system is not perfect. We’ve accepted that.
  • They have to hit a buzzer.
    There are many, MANY ways to qualify a run as great: If the person made history of some kind, if they overcame something, if they just really grit it out. But our mind exploded trying to figure out a bracket of polls that included ALL the runs, so we’re just talking about buzzers this time.
  • The match ups are pretty random.
    They’re just related to how the videos are sorted on the YouTube pages. No other thought went into it. Oh well. :)
  • If an additional run is needed to balance the bracket, we’ll include the “Last Ninja Standing” run of that season. Think of it as a wildcard.
  • We’ll move through all the seasons, and then circle back through the rounds.
